“We’re finishing our TBS show,” the joker revealed.

The plan is to re-appear on HBO Max sometime in the near future, and I think this will be my fourth iteration of the program.

“Imagine a doll cooking show and you have the wrong idea,” he added jokingly.

O’Brien started his late night career all the way in 1993, when he hosted Late Night with Conan O’Brien on NBC.

That show ran for nearly 20 years, ending in February 2009 when Conan was brought in to replace Jay Leno on The Tonight Show.

However, that stint only lasted about seven months, due to the low viewing figures.

Then, in November 2010, he debuted his late night TBS show, simply called Conan.

The program followed a one-hour format until 2018, when it transitioned to a 30-minute duration.

And this week, O’Brien revealed to viewers that Conan’s final episode will take place on June 24, before his fourth iteration of a late-night show – this time weekly – will soon premiere on HBO Max.

In fact, the move is not that surprising; both TBS and HBO Max are parts of WarnerMedia, the media giant owned by AT&T.
